With less than a month to go until ACE Comic Con’s Midwest convention opens its doors to thousands of fans, ACE has released the panel line-up and what fans can expect on the weekend between October 11-13 in Chicago.

As the guest list is now almost complete (with only some WWE stars being added before the con), fans were eager to find out which panels they were going to be able to see during their time at the convention.

The Friday line-up will be completely dedicated to all things Wrestling, meaning the only panel on that day (so far) will be “Catch These Hands: A Conversation With WWE Superstar Braun Strowman”. The schedule states there will be more panels announced for that day, so keep an eye out on ACE Comic Con’s social media and the upcoming App for the event.

Saturday will be a busy day for fans panel-wise, as this is the day most celebrity guests will appear. Kicking off the day on stage will be a conversation with Game Of Thrones and Star Wars star, Gwendoline Christie. Her panel will be followed by the duo we’ve all loved since Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, Tessa Thompson and Brie Larson. It will be interesting to witness their chemistry and dynamic on stage and we can’t wait to find out what stories and insights they will share about their characters’ journey in the MCU. After this, fans will have the opportunity to watch a panel with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, who will hopefully also talk about his work on the upcoming PS4 game, “Death Stranding”. Closing Saturday will be our favorite chaotic couple, Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal, whose interactions on the Spider-Man: Far From Home press tour were an absolute treat, making this one of the top panels to look forward to.

On the final day, another Game Of Thrones and newly-introduced Marvel star will make his convention debut in the US: Kit Harrington. While he might not be able to share a lot about his upcoming role in The Eternals, he will surely have some anecdotes and insights to offer about his time on one of the most successful TV series of all time. Another convention debut will be made by Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch, both stars of Netflix’ Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. Following them will be no other than Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth. Because of a canceled event, this will be his first time appearing at an ACE event and fans are understandably ecstatic to meet him and get some of their questions about the upcoming fourth Thor film answered. The final panel of ACE Comic Con Midwest will be Rocketman and Kingsmen alumnus, Taron Egerton, who might be able to tell us a little more about the rumors that he will be joining the MCU in the near future, too.

Conny joined her first fandom at the tender age of three and somehow never stopped finding new things to obsess about and love. Her current love is everything Marvel, especially two characters who tend to be frozen at one point or the other. From Drag Race to Harry Potter or musical theatre, as long as it makes her smile (or cry), it’s probably her thing.
